    Former Employee - Production in Memphis, TN

    I worked at GlaxoSmithKline full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay was ok while it lasted. Health insurance benefits were good while they lasted. Hard to say anything else good about this company.

    Cons

    Human Resources are not available for employee support. Forced to use vacation time for sick time & 2 weeks when company closes for Christmas. No recognition for hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair with your judgments. Support & retain your loyal, hard working employees, and get rid of the toxic employees. ..not the other way around.

    Pros

    Pay and befits are (were) good. Coworkers and boss are great. Enjoy working with them.

    Cons

    No morale. Very stressful environment. IT systems are outdated. Promotions are difficult to get.

    CEO and upper management.
    Ethics are preached, yet constantly being broken.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house and get someone who can run the company and not ruin it.

    Pros

    Top notch employees and management. I enjoyed my time there in QA. They have excellent benefits and the pay is good,

    Cons

    Reorganization occurred while I was there; however most big companies go through these changes as well. I don't have too many cons as I enjoyed my time there.

    I have been working at GlaxoSmithKline full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people who strive for excellence. The salary is good, benefits are great. Company is large which affords opportunities.

    Cons

    The industry is contracting and so is GSK. In addition, there is no evidence of a long-term strategy. Layoffs are constant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a strategy that will work over the long-term. Don't be so reactive to every little bump in the market.

    Pros

    Everybody that works here is a team player. The supervisors are always around and willing to help. They are willing to give you time off whenever you need.

    Cons

    It is a huge company so sometimes it is difficult to interact with a lot of employees. No too many cons
